Cannot emulate joystick using keyboard with E-UAE or PUAE

I've been using PUAE on my Macbook Pro for a while, but have always been using a USB gamepad. Today, I tried using the keyboard to play some games. Unfortunately, nothing I tried worth. The keys I'd assign would always be completely unresponsive.

I use Hi-Toro to configure PUAE and have tried both the default mappings and custom mappings. Just to test, I also tried E-UAE and it had the same behaviour. The 'RAW Mappings' option in Hi-Toro doesn't seem to help either.

I must be doing something stupid. Anyone have an idea what I could be doing wrong?

I was having exactly the same problem until I tried chiark's barebones config. Check out the details here.

Also make sure overdrive isn't enabled for your joystick if you're using USB Overdrive.

Keyboard not being mapped to joystick commands on Mac

I just tried the bare bones config and still have the same problem in PUAE. E-UAS works fine, except the screen isn't centered. The mouse always works fine in games, but keyboard input for the joystick doesn't respond at all.

I don't have USB Overdrive installed.


This is a PUEA 2.3.1 problem. Moving discussion to the 2.3.1 thread.
